Centrepointe Theatre’s grand opening took place on May 3, 1988, starring “local boy” and internationally renowned entertainer, impressionist Rich Little. Since then the theatre has hosted an extensive list of truly great artists performing to sold-out houses, including Sir Peter Ustinov, Christopher Plummer, Liona Boyd, Sarah McLachlan, Bruce Cockburn, Blue Rodeo, the Barenaked Ladies, Kids in the Hall, the Rankins, Leahy, Lyle Lovett, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Harlem Gospel Choir and a great many others.
The Centrepointe Expansion
In 2010, as part of the Centrepointe Expansion a 199-seat Studio Theatre was added. Well received by the emergent artist community, the black box style theatre is versatile and offers many configuration options to clients. With the addition of the new Studio, Centrepointe Theatre then changed its logo to include both venues and is now called Centrepointe Theatres. The new studio theatre is open for business, but an official ribbon cutting ceremony will be scheduled in the coming months.
